Back to Fitness Doesn't Start with an Ramp test

Why does “Zone Benchmarking” happen before the “Ramp Test”? It says in the description for the “Zone Benchmarking” that the “Ramp Test” should come before the “Zone Benchmarking”, and that “Zone Benchmarking” is supposed to check the accuracy of the “Ramp Test”? Should I do a separate Ramp Test prior to starting this workout plan? Thank you in advance.

Hi @1760Ghost ,

Welcome to the Zwift community forums!

Yes, you will want to do a separate ramp test before you do the Zone Benchmarking. That way the benchmarking can double check the ramp results and make sure you’re in the proper zones moving forward.

Thank you Terry.
